Earn A Highly Respected Credential—Part Time!
Syracuse University’s College of Professional Studies offers accessible academic pathways to market-sensitive degrees, certificates and credentials so you can excel in your education and career.
Online Part-time Degrees and Certificates
Syracuse University has a well-earned reputation for excellence that spans 150 years of classroom teaching on a diverse, inclusive campus. That commitment to high-quality learning now infuses our part-time online programs.
On Campus Part-time Undergraduate Degrees
There are over 100 undergraduate degree programs offered on campus at Syracuse University, and most of them can be completed through part-time study. Most degrees require at least some daytime classes, and some offer a combination of evening and flexible format classes including online, accelerated and weekend classes. All Syracuse University part-time undergraduates register through the College of Professional Studies.
Microcredential programs are intended for learners who want to gain general knowledge, learn a new skill, upgrade existing skills, or develop personal interests. By providing condensed and focused learning experiences, noncredit courses and programs allow students to build a portfolio of demonstrated learning in a short amount of time, whether for professional advancement or personal interest. Upon completion, students receive a certificate of completion or digital badge.
